Well at least I did 2 good things today!

I may have had a sundae of coffee ice cream with caramel syrup; got into a tiff with my grandma; not unpacked as much as I should have, BUT at least I did 2 good things. I brewed up some white tea. I like to make iced white tea. I heat up some agua in my micro and brew the stuff, add some sweetener and then load it up with ice cubes. It is super yummy and supposedly quite healthful. Here are some white tea facts:

White tea is made of leaves and buds that are "less processed" than other types of tea. In fact I read on some sites that it is only dried in the sunlight and not fermented like with black tea. Health benefits of white tea are greater than any other type. Rich in antioxidants, white tea has proven greater cancer-fighting ability than even green tea. White teas are known to boost the immune system, helping to fight viruses and infection-causing bacteria. Studies have also shown that fluoride-rich white teas help prevent tooth decay. Woot! Definitely didn't know about the flouride thang. I stopped smoking a long time ago, but anything anti-cancer is pro-me!
